Having been a bit behind on the news due to limited to no Internet or TV access, I just learned of the following Michael Bloomberg quote (from "The Taliban in My Inbox" by Bill Roggio):
“If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that, somebody who’s homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something, it could be anything,” Bloomberg told CBS News.
How on earth could the mayor of New York City not think that jihadists were the likely suspects? Instead he implicitly blamed Tea Partiers and Republicans.
This is the financial man who was installed as mayor during the period of great financial crimes and who, for unknown reasons, was allowed to have an unprecedented third mayoral term. And he's so with it that despite all the actual and aborted plots by jihadists on New York since 1993, he muses that a disgruntled anti-Obamacare nut might have been the perpetrator.
On which group is the U. S. raining missiles upon from drone aircraft? Who is NATO fighting in Afghanistan? Well, duh, maybe they are striking back.
This striking back is apparently common in terrorism circles. The story is that the attack in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh's group occurred one year after the Branch Davidian disaster near Waco. Where are the violent deaths from Obamacare that would motivate an anti-Obamacare person or group to attempt mass murder?
As in a mystery story, sometimes small details such as this Bloomberg statement are telling.
After all the lies of commission and omission the past few years regarding the financial scandal and then the Big Lie about the "city" of Marja in Afghanistan (just why was that primitive group of rural villages invaded other than to show that the "surge" was "working"?), is it really possible that the mayor of New York City really thought first about opposition to Obamacare rather than those the U. S. continues to kill overseas and who have been busily trying to attack us, sometimes successfully, for years?
In the words of Robert Zimmerman aka Bob Dylan:
There's something going on and you don't know what it is, do you, Mr. Jones?
Whatever it is, it's bad sh-t.
